This suggests much about widespread trade and the dispersal of knowledge.

Planned Towns is a universal concept...Brains doesn't have much to do with it..Just observe kids playing in the sand at the beach...
Myy granddaughter...maybe 4 or 5....she drew a Town on the driveway...Stores, houses, Lake, roads.
?Grandma (moi) said she was going swimming in the water...naked. Shocked, she added a jail to the Town and guess where grandma wound up.

Well, they knew that a lot of guests would be flying in to attend the royal weddng for William the Iron Man and his bride, Kate the Magnificent, so they had to get organized fast.
The Romans are often credited with bringing civilisation to Britain - including town planning.
"Other than that, what did the Romans ever do for us?"

The Brits don't start to get a handle on the barbarians in their midst, they'll get to see what life in pre-Roman towns is like, first hand.
Same goes for this side of the pond.

The grid city design is far superior to the subdivision design favored by developers. It prevents congestion, allows better walking opportunities, has better ingress and egress.
Modern city planners can learn from these pre Roman cities.
They were probably Roman in all but name by then. Just like the invading Goths like Alaric were already heavily Romanized down to fighting methods in 451 AD

In other words, the Romans took over an existing civilization.
“After the Roman invasion, the town was used by its military, and there is evidence that Roman buildings were very swiftly built on top of Iron Age structures.”

I would have been shocked if the British tribes hadn't been building towns. IMHO, the main reason so few pre-Roman towns have been found is it would have made sense for those same towns to continue to be occupied after the Roman conquest.
German tribes were building towns on a grid and they were never (permanently) occupied by Rome.
